Fusion action and laughs for Jeon Woo-chi

Giggity. So excited for this drama. Here’s a teaser and a barrage of stills from the upcoming fusion sageuk Jeon Woo-chi, starring Cha Tae-hyun as a cheeky Taoist wizard who travels to Joseon on a revenge mission and ends up an unlikely hero. The poster features Woo-chi’s double life — one the bumbling nebbishy cover that is quintessentially Cha Tae-hyun, and the other a badass fighter with superpowers. Two Cha Tae-hyuns for the price of one? Sold.

The teaser is short, but it features a glimpse of high-flying action, some epic uses of magic (Woot!), and silly broad comedy. Any trailer that goes out on a fart joke is pretty much sealing its tone; though I suspect it’ll be much like Arang and the Magistrate and start out broad and wacky, and end up becoming much more serious as the story revs up. I wouldn’t mind an all-out comedy either, but given the nature of the story, we’re likely in for our share of darkness too.

Cha Tae-hyun stars as the Taoist wizard Jeon Woo-chi whose source of strength is a gumiho’s fox bead. He’s from the fictional utopian land of Yuldo and the drama will begin with Woo-chi losing his mentor and father figure Hong Gil-dong, and the love of his life Hong Mu-yeon (played by UEE). She’s got a dual role to play as well, because she’s both his first love who’s lost to him at some point (it remains vague how), and also a dangerous baddie because she’s bewitched by a spell that makes her an emotionless killer. Eep.

Lee Hee-jun stars as Woo-chi’s nemesis, the dark Taoist wizard and all-around scary mofo. And the stills below feature our first glimpse of Hong Jong-hyun as the noble warrior who chases Jeon Woo-chi for the other thing — the breaking the law and being a hero thing. I’m holding out hope for a City Hunter / Prosecutor type of antagonism: enemies with a side of grudging respect and a hint of bromance. Yunno, as long as we’re making wish lists.

Please be epic. Please be epic. Please be epic. Please be epic.

Jeon Woo-chi premieres November 21 on KBS.

Lookin' more and more interesting with each pre-release information available. I have the similar feeling I had viewing this trailers that I got viewing the Faith original trailer (the one with Kang Ji-hwan) It gave me a this-could-be-a-pretty-Epic feeling. *knock on wood*

I guess this one is completely different from Faith since we're dealing with wizards here, unlike Faith that they seldom use their powers. They fight scenes will be epic! **fingers-crossed

Plus, i'm looking forward for the comedy CTH can bring on this drama. I've watched his movie Speedy Scandal, and I can say that this man can really make everyone laugh. :-)

I was comparing this original trailer and not the actual Faith drama that we watched http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyMrcMdcT6E
also, I just meant that the Jeon Woo-chi teaser made me feel the same way i did when I watched the original Faith trailer, not because of plot but because both looked pretty Epic. Yeah, I agree, the fight scene in Faith was horrible and so anticlimactic at many times.

I do understand your comment here, but I based my reply not with the teaser alone but with the plot as well. I don't usually really only on the teaser but also on the story it promises.

Given that this drama is all about wizards means that they will be using their powers in each and every fight scenes between wizards. Unlike Faith that they only use it if they want to (or the director wants to..HA!). Wizards don't fight with fist alone. :-) So, i strongly believe that this will be epic. Plus, the plot seems to be more interesting than Faith. Faith deals strongly with politics that made it appear boring in most of it scenes.

Lee Hee Joon is so deliciously evil in this teaser which is such a refreshing take for him after playing adorable quirky characters in Wild Romance and He who rolled in unexpectedly....can't wait to see more of him in the future

As for this drama..it feels a lot like Warrior Baek Dong Soo from the teaser....which is not necessarily a good thing for me...but I'm hoping and praying for the best cuz I love this cast

Now I wonder how ki in Faith looks like, 'cause I didn't watch it after the first (despite of all my hype before and all my great impression of Ryu Deok Hwan and Lee MIn Ho) and many seem disappointed of it.
Can someone give me some explanation about it?

I am so excited about this one! Thx for the news, the trailer, and the pics!

If it's like Arang, I'm totally buying it...however I do hope that the darker parts will be interesting, because I hated it in Arang when Arang became a whiny and useless girl.

It's Hong Jong-hyun, he was in dramas like Vampire Idol and White Christmas. Didn't catch Vampire Idol, but am finishing up with the last 2 eps of White Christmas ... and on the whole, the cast acting did a really good job.

I hope this is semi-historical sageuk drama with a comedic twist with Cha Tae Hyun! I like his nerdish look.

Can't wait for Jeon woo chi's wizardry hijinks!

Just wish the worker will get their wish soon and the conflict will be resolved, so this show (and IN2D) won't be affected much

So adding this drama to my watch list. Looks epic, and with Cha Tae Hyun bringing in the funny? Sold.

I seriously can't imagine Cha Tae Hyun shooting action scenes, especially after seeing how he is in 1N2D. More reason to watch this drama!
This is going to be epic. Please be epic. You have to be epic. Please!!!
